Through these activities, students are expected to write according to the ideas and his creativity. Teachers understand that writing is often developed simultaneously and can help cultivate talent and learning interest of students. Needed strategic ways to build the next generation has the knowledge and ability in literacy. The alternative is to improve the quality of human resources in Indonesia. It will certainly be a factor supporting the progress of national education to compete internationally. One of the biggest challenges the nation of Indonesia to realize the nation's mood towards literacy is leaving the oral tradition (orality) to enter the reading tradition of writing (literacy). It was time of cultural literacy should be inculcated from an early age so that children can get to know the reading materials and master the world of writing.There was great a nation if its people cultivate literacy.
